Twins 6, Blue Jays 3
Jeff Manship went 4 1/3 innings in his second big league start. (Darren Calabrese/ AP)
Joe Mauer showed why he's leading the American League in batting, going 3-for-5 with a double and two RBIs to lead the Twins to victory. Jeff Manship started strong, but ran into trouble in the fifth and exited, and as a result wasn't eligible for his first big league victory.
